Native 4K resolution for lifelike pictures
With more than four times the resolution of Full HD, native 4K offers 8.8 million pixels (4096 x 2160) for a picture that is incredibly lifelike, which is why it is the resolution defined by the DCI (Digital Cinema Initiative) for theater distribution. See corner-to-corner clarity and watch movies from much closer than you would in Full HD.
Ultra-short throw distance for flexible installation
The VPL-VZ1000ES has been designed with flexible installation in mind. Place the projector right next to a wall and you’ll enjoy a beautiful 80″ (diagonal) display; move the projector 210mm away from the wall and this screen size increases to a huge 120″. So whether it’s placed on the floor, mounted on the ceiling or used for rear projection, you can be sure that you’ll always see the big picture.
2500 lumens for spectacular brightness
Savor the action with an incredible 2500 lumens brightness, for high contrast across the screen. A highly efficient Z-Phosphor laser light generates the brightness required for vibrant images across the whole screen.
Native 4K SXRD panel
The advanced Silicon X-tal Reflective Display (SXRD) panel technology featured in our digital theater projectors delivers native 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution images, with more than four times the detail of Full HD. Fine details are wonderfully clear and natural, without jagged edges or visible pixels.
See deeper blacks with 4K SXRD panels
The latest SXRD panels deliver even better contrast, as well as native 4K resolution. With SXRD projection, you’ll see rich, inky blacks, clear cinematic motion, and smooth images. Improvements to the reflective silicon layer now mean even better light control, for precisely delivered shadows and blacks.
High dynamic contrast for stunning realism
The VPL-VZ1000ES’s SXRD panels and laser light source help the projector achieve high dynamic contrast. This means that the full color spectrum-from deep, inky blacks through to vibrant reds, blues and greens-is replicated with fine detail and realism, making every scene spring to life for a truly immersive cinematic experience.
Don’t keep your audience waiting for the show to begin. With quick start and laser light source technology, you’re ready to start projection right after switch-on.
The powerful video processor in the VPL-VZ1000ES offers Motionflow for smooth and clear motion, even when viewing 4K content. Motionflow™ adds frames to reduce blur while maintaining brightness, making it ideal for fast-moving sports content. Cinema purists can choose True Theater mode to retain the original 24fps.
Colors come alive with TRILUMINOS
Discover true-to-life colors and tones. The VPL-VZ1000ES incorporates TRILUMINOS color, reproducing more tones and textures than a standard projector system. Hard-to-reproduce crimson reds, aqua blues, and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better, too, with skin tones more faithfully reproduced.
HDR compatibility: every image comes to life
Get the most from today’s UHD Blu-ray discs and streaming services with High Dynamic Range. HDR video offers an expanded brightness range that delivers more realistic, high-contrast images and brilliant color. Compatible with both HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) formats, Sony’s home cinema projectors reproduce color and contrast that’s faithful to the creators’ intent.
Future-proofed support for the latest HDMI standards
The VPL-VZ1000ES can project native 4K content at up to 60 frames per second, for even smoother images with superior color and realism. Support for HDCP 2.2 lets you enjoy the latest 4K movies and TV shows.
